Old Changing Rooms, Devonport Park
Old Changing Rooms, Devonport Park
These changing rooms have long since been disused and abandoned to the tender mercies of local teenagers. The building was originally built at the start of World War II as a gas decontamination centre. In the event of a gas attack, people were supposed to enter the building, closing the outer door before opening the inner door, remove their shoes and outer clothes and douse themselves underneath the showers which were fed by a large water tank above. Fortunately it was not needed as chemical weapons were not used in the Second World War on any group of people with the capability to retaliate in kind.
